Virgil van Dijk addresses Jurgen Klopp’s emotional farewell game at Liverpool: “It will be horrible for me emotionally”

Jurgen Klopp has built one of the best teams in Premier League history in his Liverpool team. First appointed over 8 years ago, he has led them to win every title possible, including their first ever Premier League trophy and a Champions League trophy.

And he is still making them challenge for another league title even after losing key players in recent years. However, fans will be unhappy as the German manager is set to leave the club after this season, and one player couldn’t be sadder.

Virgil van Dijk speaks out on Jurgen Klopp’s final Liverpool game

Virgil van Dijk is having a very good season for Liverpool, leading their backline brilliantly. As the captain, he has already led them to trophy success in the League Cup. However, the Dutchman is also sad that it will be final season under longtime manager Jurgen Klopp.

When asked about the farewell game of Klopp, Van Dijk said he is dreading it, “I’m an emotional person, I don’t like to say goodbyes. It’s going to be horrible! As captain I’ll probably speak a little bit, that day I’ll be dreading. It makes it easier if we have success, that’s the aim now.”

Van Dijk and Klopp have had a very special relationship over the years. It was the German who brought the former Southampton defender to Liverpool in 2018 for a then-world-record fee for a defender. Together, they marked an era at the club, winning the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League the next year. Van Dijk even had his best ever season in 2019, coming close to winning the Ballon d’Or as well, after having one of the best seasonal performance by a center back.

There is no doubt that Klopp has made Van Dijk so good, and the Dutchman will definitely miss him after his departure. In fact, reports suggest the captain may be one of few players to follow him out of the club.

When is Jurgen Klopp’s last game in charge of Liverpool?

With Jurgen Klopp ready to leave after this season, fans will be emotional watching a true legend of the club go away. The German will surely get a massive farewell from the fans in his last game.

Liverpool will host Wolverhampton Wolves on May 19, which will be the last game of the league season. It could also be the last game of Klopp managing the club and definitely his last game at Anfield, where he can expect an emotional display from the fans. If Liverpool can maintain their current lead in the league by then and become league champions, it will be an even better moment for everyone.

However, his last game in charge of the club depends on their success in the Europa League. If they manage to go all the way to the final, his last ever game will be on May 22 in Dublin at the Aviva Stadium. They are currently in the quarterfinals against Atalanta and have a good chance of winning the whole competition.

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool will now focus on their next game, which is against Sheffield United in the Premier League tomorrow.
